Lots of kids get treated bad in their schools and these bullying stories don’t always get public. Kids who are bullied are ashamed of themselves, that such things can happen to them, and they don’t want to talk about it. However, if a story goes public, it can change a life!
Meet Jonathan Destin. He lives in Marquette-les-Lille, France, and goes to school in this town too. He was bullied for 6 years because of his weight, his grades, his name, and everything else the bullies could think of. “When I was 11, I weighed 154 pounds. In the canteen, they would say to me “It’s your destiny to be a big porker” while punching me under the table.” he said.
He tried to fight his bullies one day and he was beaten severely. Not a single day passed in school without him being bullied. “My mother always gave me $10 to buy a sandwich for lunch. I had to give it to them. They would always wait for me on the street corner.”
One day his life got even worse than it was before, according to the bullying stories he told. “They dragged me into a narrow street, like a tunnel, not far from where I live. I tried to run, to escape, but one of the guys blocked the way. They trapped me in and put a gun to my temple.” The thugs wanted 100$ on the next day, or else they would kill his parents.
